Hi. I'm Trent Mera, and I'm the MySQL subject matter expert for performance monitoring at Quest Software. MySQL and MariaDB adoption is expanding rapidly. Chances are, your organization is already running MySQL or MariaDB databases, or at least considering their use in a future application development. The continued evolution of these open source platforms not only make them a feasible, cost-effective option for organizations to implement, but they are also proven to offer stability and scalability on par with the traditional commercial alternatives.
We understand that the introduction of open source technologies into an enterprise database environment can be a challenge for DBAs. While MySQL and MariaDB have some similarities with traditional relational databases, the way that availability, performance, and capacity are managed is unique. Also, the native tooling provided for monitoring and diagnostics is often not on par with what enterprise IT shops require to efficiently manage their environment. Companies that do not have an efficient way of managing MySQL and MariaDB often struggle to realize the benefits and cost savings that the platform can provide them.
What if you could proactively manage the health of your MySQL and MariaDB infrastructures? What if you could help your organization realize the cost efficiency of leveraging open source databases without any sacrifice in your ability to monitor and diagnose problems? What if the tooling that you currently use to manage your commercial databases, like SQL Server and Oracle, could also help you manage your open source databases, with a consistent set of workflows around alerting, notification, and reporting?
Foglight can help with all of these tasks, while also helping your organization with their broader cross-platform needs to centralize the management of relational and open source and non-relational databases like Postgres and MongoDB. Implementing Foglight for MySQL will make your job easier and help ensure the health and performance of your database environment. Ready to learn more? Take a look at the information below.
